Date Night Done Right!

There are some AMAZING and frugal date night opportunities to be had in the next few weeks!  Here is a list of my top picks:

Old Fashioned Roller Skating.  Just think of the romance!  All those teeny-bopper dreams of holding hands during the couples skate under the disco ball can come true and with a Groupon for only $9 a couple it is a steal!!  Ripon Rollerskating Groupon

Modesto Symphony Orchestra Season Tickets (for frugal couples).  For a limited time the MSO is selling concert packages.  My favorite is the Compose Your Own (CYO) Flexible Series Subscription.  With the CYO, for as little as $67 a person you get tickets to any 4 Classic or Pops concerts for the 2014/2015 season and the seats are good!!

As a CYO subscriber you will enjoy:

  • Our most flexible subscription package to suit your personal taste and schedule!
  • Up to 8% savings over single ticket prices!
  • Don’t forget to utilize the free ticket exchange for maximum flexibility!
  • Plus all the fantastic MSO subscriber benefits found here!

Pump Boys and Dinettes at the East Sonora Repertory Theater:

June 13 - July 27 at East Sonora Theatre
The 'Pump Boys' sell high octane on Highway 57 in Grand Ole Opry country and the 'Dinettes', Prudie and Rhetta Cupp, run the Double Cupp diner next door. Together they fashion an evening of country western songs that received unanimous raves from critics and audiences across the country, on and off-Broadway (and in three record-breaking runs at Sierra Rep). With heartbreak and hilarity, they perform on guitars, piano, bass and, yes, kitchen utensils. "It doesn't merely celebrate the value of friendship and life's simple pleasures, it embodies them." -- New York Times (Rated PG)
